Little Dragon’s new album is set to release on March 27, 2020. Get ready music fans, 2020 is shaping up to be a fun year of music releases.
Little Dragon returns with their new studio album New Me, Same Us, available physically and digitally on March 27th on Ninja Tune. Entirely self-produced and recorded at the pioneering Swedish four-piece’s long-term home-built studio in Gothenburg, the album is another chapter in the continuing evolution of Little Dragon. The album’s infectious lead single “Hold On” is a message about breaking away and moving on, and is a slice of classic Little Dragon awesomeness. “It started out as a slick house track but transformed once Fred played the base through it and we all worked it together,” the band explains. “It became something raw and soulful. It’s a simple groove that makes us dance. We can’t wait to play it live because once we play it live it most certainly will change again.”
Building on their hugely popular and highly-regarded live performances that have spawned a decade-spanning touring career, Little Dragon is set to kick off their previously announced international headline tour this March. See full tour routing on their website.
The band had this to say about their new album, “This album has been the most collaborative for us yet, which might sound weird considering we’ve been making music together for all these years, but we worked hard at being honest, finding the courage to let go of our egos and be pieces of something bigger,” they explain. Finding new direction in their unique style of unhurried, off-kilter r’n’b, pop and electronics, they sound as rejuvenated and energized as ever. The record also finds them in a reflective mood with Yukimi’s distinctive vocals musing on transitions, longing, and saying goodbye. They note, “We are all on our own personal journeys, full of change, yet still we stand united with stories we believe in, that make us who we are.”
